The holidays are such a great time for families to come together from near and far to enjoy time together. But incorporating a fabulous vacation for that get together, in particular traveling to a beautiful destination like San Diego? Now that’s a way to vacation AND bond with loved ones!

I was blessed to be contacted by J, the wonderful matriarch of this lovely family for a photo session while she and her family vacationed in San Diego! We arranged for a beach photo session with the hopes of beautiful, picture-perfect San Diego weather. Mother Nature had other plans! It was really cold, incredibly windy and overcast. It even sprinkled a bit during our session! Luckily bright overcast skies work well for photography as it’s God’s gift of a natural diffuser, and for that I am thankful. But the gusty winds and drizzle? That we could’ve done without! Luckily, the family were all troopers and we captured some lovely images!

I was honored to be trusted to capturing these memories of their family during their visit to La Jolla! I loved our photo session and hope J and her family did as well!

As always, thanks for stopping by. Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day! Make sure not to miss any future posts by signing up for the Clicky Chick Creates email list here! You’ll get a great little freebie download as my thank you!

Multi Generation M Family {Sneak Peek}

Capturing extended families together brings me so much joy!

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // Multi-generation family photo session at Balboa Park, San Diego, CAWhen you think about how America was founded, it was individuals and families leaving their loved ones behind to bravely travel, plant themselves in foreign land, and grow roots. So although it’s been happening for as long as time, I know it’s hard to see our loved ones move away, whether it’s out of the neighborhood, out of state or to a foreign country. Nowadays, so many families have loved ones scattered across the country, or even across the globe. And that’s especially when I love being a photographer, and being asked to capture family portraits while all the loved ones are in one spot!

I was ecstatic when the M family contacted me for a multi-generation family photo session. The love, joy and camaraderie between all the family was lovely to see! We did get lucky with the San Diego sunshine, but boy-oh-boy was it cold that day! I know we can’t really complain, but really, for San Diego? It was freezing cold! The entire family were troopers and we kept trucking along with jackets and hugs for warming up between shots!

I loved the session and hope the M family did as well! Happy New Year!

10 on 10 – April // Engagement at Mercado with Rey & Gina

I had the amazing privilege to photograph this gorgeous couple for their engagement session, not once, but twice! We actually broke their session into two sessions – you might remember this post from last week of our sunset beach session? For our first session, we actually headed to a Mercado to get some local flavor and colors in Baja California.

And did I mention the best part? Those cutie pie-love birds are my family! My handsome and smart brother Rey and his adorable and creative fiancé Gina are getting married towards the end of the year, and we are so excited for the big event!

Gina and I have been pinning ideas and texting back and forth with inspiration for this session, and when she went exploring her new neighborhood, found these adorable areas for us to incorporate during our session. We did a morning session at the local Mercado and had a blast! There were so many amazing little spots we found during our outing, we could’ve went on photographing for days!! The colors, the textures, the vibe – we loved it all!
